New data protection regulations from May 2018 (GDPR)

Under the new data protection regulations introduced from 25th May 2018, we will continue to contact patients via text messages regarding the delivery of care if they have provided consent to do so.

Where practices are sending messages about recommended treatment for the management of a specific health issue, this is defined as providing appropriate care for patients, not marketing purposes.
